Deal of the Week 6th January 2011

Have you spotted any good deals this week?
Let me know and we can share it with everyone, email me matthewglover @ mswhs.com!

Firstly, I would like to congratulate Tim Daleo from UsingWindowsHomeServer.com and Tom Ziegmann from TomOnTech.com, who have both been given MVP status as of the start of this year, well done guys.

I have been threatening for weeks now to do a regular weekly deal of the week post, well now here it is. I am aiming to find the best deals each week for Windows Home Servers, UPS’s, and Hard Drives both internal and external, also by popular demand Blu-ray drives. If you would like to see me cover more categories, then just let me know what you would like to see covered each week.

Not all of the categories will be covered every week, the best deal of the strongest category for that week will be featured, the category will try and display one item that is US based and one item that is UK based.

If you come across any top deals for the week let me know, maybe you have your own online store and want to share your top deals for the week, feel free to drop me an email, matthewglover @ mswhs.com. The only stipulation is that any deals posted will be accessible online and purchasable online, we are not restricted by country and I aim to cater for everyone.
